comment Must I work in a company that does not give leaves?
I noticed that I put a comment in earlier, and it is an important question, but I should voted for this question to be closed as it is off-topic in this forum.

comment Effect of treadmill desk on productivity
Work from the car at the beach? You must have a stronger will power than I have. That would be too much distractions at the beach for me. :-)

comment Effect of treadmill desk on productivity
+1 Great Answer. Do you have a separate desk where you could sit down for the work that requires you to be still? I'm a software engineer, with plenty of coding and report generation etc., and I would think walking and typing accurately would be quite a difficult skill to master.

comment The productive label printer
I guess it depends on the information on the label, but couldn't you use a sheet of labels and write the information on it with a pen?

Not too sure which country you are working in, but the could be labour laws that your company could be in violation of. You should check it out.

comment Long term effect of learning speed reading
Could you adjust your reading speed depending on what you are reading? For reading detailed text like some specifications, I would imagine that the "slow and capture everything" reading mode kicks in. For the latest novel by your favourite author, the "fast and understand the plot" reading mode kicks in.

comment Do audio books help our productivity?
I guess that for some people, it is easier to digest the information when listening rather than reading. So in that case, it does help productivity.

comment I have burned out, what is best way to fix it?
@Tom, I think it all depends on your personal circumstances. After working since graduation, a period of about 12 years, I felt burned out. I sold up and went travelling for about 12 months. Did jobs that I didn't even consider doing. It really gave me a fresh look and a fresh appreciation of my chosen profession. However that was my kids came on the scene.

Really like this as it allows one last opportunity before finally it into the rubbish bin.

comment How do I teach productivity techniques to kids?
Let me give you a simple example, if you don't teach your six year old child the value for being tidy and packing up after playing, would your day be as productive if they do tidy and pack up after play? From my perspective, most good habits are also productivity boosters, so I don't see this as a crazy idea!

comment Is there a way of arranging the bookmarks Chrome's bookmark bar more efficiently?
Good suggestion. One problem I have found is that the icons for Google Calendar is the same as Google Reader. Same problem if I have many sites that does not have an implementation of those small icons (not sure what their names are.)

comment Does having an office with a window view increases my productivity?
+1 for the too distracting information. It also depends on the scenery outside as well.

Also hard for Fog Creek guys to get any non-building scenery as they are right in the middle of NYC.
